A lot of design projects start with problem-solving, and this pool house, on Long Island’s East End, was no exception. Building codes in the Hamptons specify that a pool house can only contain 200 square feet of interior space. Here, the interior section — maxing out at exactly 200 square feet, and enclosable by folding doors — was carefully crafted to maximize the space: it contains a kitchenette, bathroom, day bed and chair. A trellised area, designed for lounging and relaxing, connects it to a garage, where this family keeps all their beach-going essentials, from surfboards to Jeeps. Natural elements, from marble to bluestone to wisteria vines, connect the space to its environment.

The goal for this Hamptons pool house was to create a maximum variety of experiences within a relatively small set of indoor and outdoor spaces, all within eyeshot and earshot of each other. Moving through the space reveals a range of dedicated areas: a seating area with fireplace, trellised sections that frame the sky, enclosed areas for storage and food prep, and a changing room and bathroom. Elements of nature abound, from cedar louvers to bluestone floors to a natural zinc roof, which will patina over time. Plenty of trees and foliage surrounding the structure give it a feeling of enclosure, so that you can’t tell where the architecture ends and landscape design begins. A chimney made of handmade Petersen bricks from Denmark rises above, anchoring the composition of spaces with a place to gather.
